Yes, we shall be kind to him. We loved that movie as well, and the story has a respectful nod to that, while focusing on another character who seems to be the opposite of Wall-E :)

if i had more time, i would've done my original xmas mosaic idea:

> festive mercy
>
> 'christmas: late night'
starscream is in a security room at decepticon hq arguing with megatron.
monitors show the decepticon party. various funny images such as laserbeak tied down on a plate like an xmas turkey.

> screamer says "you have no right megatron! i deserve to be at the christmas celebration. not stuck on security detail"
> megatron says "deserve starscream? you deserve to be stamped down into sub-par decorations for your pitiful performance against prime earlier"

> 'earlier: christmas afternoon'
outside in the snow prime is beating the shit out of starscream using a huge christmas tree
> prime says "you shall not ruin today for the humans starscream. not this day. not christmas day!"
> screamer says "mercy prime- i beg of you"

> 'christmas: early evening'
decepticon hq party. starscream is obviously scared as the decepticons are running around. the decepticons have their head replaced by optimus heads.
> thundercracker says "merry xmas starscream"
> screamer says "eeep!!"
> screamer thinks 'everywhere i look i see his face'

now we see that the decepticons dont have prime heads- its just starscreams imagination. a decepticon is throwing up as others get drunk.
> screamer says "er yeah thundercracker. you too."
> screamer thinks 'my nerves are shot. i dont know how much longer i can bare this'
megatron is watching starscream shake with fear
>megatron thinks 'look at him. the coward. however, when pushed, prime is an intimidating foe.
perhaps his temperary fear is somewhat... understandable?'
> starscream is whispering (keep away keep away) as his fellow cons dance around him (imaginary prime heads on the decep bodies).
> megatron thinks ' exposing his fear- humiliate him- a truely delicious present for myself.'
> decepticons are all cheering "merry christmas!!"
> megatron thinks '... and yet...'
> megatron says "starscream relieve soundwave in security. the spoils of war are for winners only"
> screamer says "th- this is intolerable!! " relieved yet afraid to show it.
> megatron says with a smirk "and one more thing- merry xmas you waste of energon"
> screamer replies "merry xmas you over sized scraplet"

Definitely appropriate. Sludge is such a simple soul. With his child-like nature, he's the perfect character to be the focus of a Christmas story.

glad you all liked ;)
was a really rushed mosaic art wise but luckily we had a great (and super fast) colourist to help improve my rushed line art. and of course, franco's lettering skills are awesome considering there was so much text and such small panels.

breast feeding flowers are always funny, as is 'angel bee' and finally we now have an answer to the question on all transfans lips- if prime has an energon axe in the cartoon, what energon weapon does cosmos have hiding behind his hand? an energon spade/trowel!!
doubt anybody noticed, but ive got sideswipe beating up sunstreakier like he did in last years 'appreciation' xmas mosaic.

sludge is a really annoying character to write about. it's awkward to read his narration when he has such a broken speech pattern, but you can't have him speak normally so trying to find a middle ground was challenging.
